In Touch with Health
community wellness program

A key ingredient for meeting our mission is offering educational programs that foster wellness and healthy lifestyle choices for all members of the communities served by Alice Hyde Medical Center.

The Education Department’s In Touch with Health community wellness program is designed to provide, under one umbrella, all of the community outreach, wellness education, health screenings, support groups, lectures and seminars that have been and are being offered by many different Departments here at the Medical Center.

The Program provides needs assessment, development, scheduling, logistical, presentation and evaluation support, while bringing the expertise of the Medical Center’s Departmental staff members to our community for state-of-the-art lectures, demonstrations, workshops, support groups and screenings, covering the full array of health related topics.

Among the areas for community education are: diabetes education, heart disease, cancer prevention and treatment, asthma, advanced directives, diet and nutrition, exercise and health, stress management, allergies, depression, headaches, smoking cessation, baby sitter safety training, teddy bear clinic, safe driving, and car seat safety.

The Community Wellness Education Program serves as a focal point for health and wellness education for all ages and backgrounds, with interactive, engaging resources available for everyone.
